Sump pumps play a major role in keeping basements dry when it rains.

This vital piece of equipment is located in the basement or crawl space of homes, where it is usually out of sight and out of mind. Often times, a homeowner may not be aware of the condition of their sump pump until it fails during a heavy rain, causing your basement to flood.

Plumbers 911 can refer you to a contractor who is experienced in the installation, repair and maintenance of sump pump systems.

What is a sump pump?

A sump pump is an important piece of waterproofing equipment found in some homes. Installed in the sump pit found at the lowest point of a basement or crawl space, it pumps away water from the base of the foundation. When water reaches a certain level in the sump pit, the pump motor kicks on and pumps the water away from your house and into a storm drain, dry well or detention pond.

Different types of sump pumps

When searching for a sump pump there are two pump designs: submersible and pedestal.

A submersible design has a waterproof housing with the pump located at the bottom and the outlet pipes at the top of the unit. These pumps are generally quieter and more desirable than pedestal pumps.

A pedestal pump has a top down design. The pump sits at the top of the unit with a pipe at the bottom of the pit. An outlet pipe runs from the bottom of the sump pit to the pump and then out to a designated drainage area.

Plumbers 911 can refer you to a plumbing contractor in your area, who has years of experience installing both variations of sump pumps.
